The Last Battle

For the first time, an edition of Lewis’s classic fantasy fiction packaged specifically for adults. Complementing the look of the author’s non-fiction books, and anticipating the forthcoming Narnia feature films, this edition contains an exclusive “P.S.” section about the history of the book, plus a round-up of the first six titles.

The second film is already in development. Sporting breathtaking new photographic covers, these new adult editions of the seven Chronicles of Narnia now give everyone an opportunity to experience the adventures in their original form. Re-live your childhood fantasies or discover for the first time what everyone will be talking about by Christmas and savour some of the best-loved stories ever written. **

The Lady of the Lake

After walking through a portal in the Tower of the Swallow, thus narrowly escaping death, the Witcher girl, Ciri, finds herself in a completely different world… a world of the Elves. She is trapped with no way out. Time does not seem to exist and there are no obvious borders or portals to cross back into her home world. But this is Ciri, the child of prophecy, and she will not be defeated. She knows she must escape to finally rejoin the Witcher, Geralt, and his companions – and also to try to conquer her worst nightmare. Leo Bonhart, the man who chased, wounded and tortured Ciri, is still on her trail. And the world is still at war.

James Bond 07 – Goldfinger

Goldfinger ist Ian Flemings siebter Bond-Roman und führt den britischen Geheimagenten um die ganze Welt, um einen von Gold besessenen Größenwahnsinnigen aufzuhalten … Auric Goldfinger: grausam, schlau, frustrierend vorsichtig. Er betrügt beim Canasta und ist ein Gauner im großen Stil, der auch im alltäglichen Leben ständig krumme Dinger dreht. Er ist die Art von Mann, die James Bond hasst. Daher ist es ein Glück für Bond, dass er im Auftrag der Bank von England und des MI5 herausfinden soll, was der reichste Mann des Landes mit seinem unrechtmäßig erworbenen Vermögen vorhat – und in welcher Verbindung er zu SMERSCH steht, dem gefürchteten sowjetischen Korps, das Jagd auf Spione macht. Doch sobald er sich erst einmal in der Organisation dieses gefährlichen Verbrechers befindet, wird 007 klar, dass Goldfingers Pläne grandioser – und tödlicher – sind, als man sich je hätte vorstellen können. Er plant nicht nur den größten Goldraub in der Geschichte, sondern auch Massenmord … Jeder kennt sie: die teils stark von den Vorlagen abweichenden Verfilmungen der James-Bond-Romane. Pünktlich zum 50-jährigen Jubliäum der Filmreihe gilt es die Ian-Fleming-Originale erstmals im “Director’s Cut” zu entdecken! Endlich wird es möglich sein, Titel wie “Goldfinger”, “Thunderball” oder “You Only Live Twice” komplett in ungekürzten Übersetzungen und mit den ursprünglichen Kapitelabschnitten und -überschriften zu lesen. Es verspricht eine einzigartige James-Bond-Bibliothek zu werden, die dazu einlädt, dem Kult um den britischen Gentleman-Geheimdienstler mit der “Lizenz zum Töten” auf den Grund zu gehen.

He’d done his job for the mysterious company CASE Global Enterprises, and now his name is finally on the marquee of one of the biggest Vegas casinos. And yet, for all the accolades, he definitely feels something is missing. He can create the most amazing illusions on Earth, but he’s also tasted *true* power. *Real* magic. He misses it. Luckily—or not—CASE Global is not done with him, and they want him to go back. The first time, he was tasked with finding a missing researcher. Now, though, he has another task: Help take Richard Holt *down*. It’s impossible to be in Vegas and *not* be a gambler. And while Quinn might not like his odds—a wyvern nearly ate him the last time he was in Alissia—if he plays his cards right, he might be able to aid his friends. He also might learn how to use real magic himself.   **
